Finding New Rhythms Early Postpartum (featured on austinfitmagazine.com)
In 2019, Coach Sadie gave birth to the world’s cutest, sweetest little girl. In both the prenatal period and the postpartum period, she poured herself into Pregnancy and Postpartum Athleticism courses, BirthFit seminars, Pelvic Floor doctors, and in the process assumed that doing all of these things would make for a speedy and productive postpartum recovery. She quickly (rudely) learned that recovery after delivery is a journey — with peaks and valleys and new rhythms, a lot of rest, and even more reliance on those surrounding you to help you.
And that’s okay.
“If you’re newly pregnant for the very first time (or maybe you’re on to number two and you’d like to do things differently) and you’re looking for guidance on how to navigate the immediate postpartum period from a mental, emotional and physical/fitness perspective, my advice to you would be to establish a rhythm based on my brilliant pelvic floor physical therapist’s feedback. I want to be very clear here: a rhythm is not a routine. Adaptable, remember? Here’s what I wound up making work for me, I hope you find it as helpful as I did…”
